Some say you can have your cake and eat it, too...I say eat your chili and the bowl, too! I work the "graveyard shift" at the post office in Portland. During those hours, there is no place to buy meals, so I often bring in dishes like this chili to share with co-workers.
With chops this good, you won’t have to rinse the plates before putting them in the dishwasher. Wine adds delectable flavor, and the meat falls from the bone. This dish is sure to initiate family members into the clean-plate club! —Kristina Wyatt, Catawba, Virginia
I adapted a pork and squash stew recipe, using tomatoes and Southwestern-style seasonings. My husband and sons loved it, and the leftovers were even better the next day! Try it with fresh corn muffins. —Molly Newman, Portland, Oregon
"This heartwarming one-dish meal is adapted from a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe," says Donna Wilkinson of Clarksburg, Maryland. "I start the pot roast cooking before I leave for church, add vegetables when I get home, and then just sit back and relax until it's done."
Loaded with tangy flavor, this is a lighter version of a favorite restaurant-style sandwich. If you don’t have a panini maker, tuck the sandwiches under the broiler until the bread is browned and the cheese melted. —Robin Haas, Cranston, Rhode Island
